Quickie update

Last week, the boss sits me down for my one-on-one (just a touch base-type meeting to go over anything that either of us might be bugged about). He breaks out my performance review… Crap, I didn’t think I was going to be doing that for another couple weeks yet. Oh weel, best get this over with….
Overall, it went much better than expected. I still have a job. I get a raise, as well as a bonus. More importantly, I get more training. Enough to add code developer to the resume which pleases me greatly, because of the added security. Add to that, a headhunter inquired if I might be interested in a job as a software test engineer in Philly. I’m not all that interested, though if it’s where I think, they pay well enough to head there if I should decide to move from where I am now.
This all makes me feel secure enough to consider buying a house. I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of years now, and the events of the past year (and the past week) make me think it’s possible. A realtor friend (acquaintance really) said I could get one easily, though he doesn’t know how much of a loan I could get, since I didn’t give him THAT kind of information. Yet.
I’m in no rush, so I’ll wait a bit more. At least until after tax season. I suspect I may have to pay something when I do them, for the first time ever. Oh well.
Oh, the run I did last night? I opted to call it a run at 30 minutes. I still managed to squeeze in 4.24 miles, so it’s faster and farther!
